Natural Lands Bryn Coed Farm
West Vincent, East Pikeland and West Pikeland Townships, Chester County, PA
After acquiring 1500 acres of Chester County forest and farmland in 2017, Natural Lands selected Nave Newell to provide land surveying and civil engineering services to help subdivide the property known as Bryn Coed Farms. As a result, 39 parcels with conservation easements sold to private buyers, a 500-acre preserve open to the public, and 72 acres dedicated toward a municipal park. We worked closely with Natural Lands to come up with the individual lots lines for the private lots, which each have a “building envelope” where the buyer can construct a new single family home; preserving view sheds of the beautiful Chester County landscape. The public preserve opened at the end of 2018 includes miles of hiking trails, the headwaters of the Pickering Creek, and historic structures.
